Everyday Guide to Spirits and Cocktails: Gintender Feature

The Gintender

A new video by The Great Courses features yours truly (The Gintender) with insight into the world of mixology, spirits and traditions.  This video is a great way to get up to speed on the sipping of scotch, the mixing of gin and mixology essentials.

It’s also a great reference if you are interested in private mixology classes with The Gintender.

We highly suggest at least giving the preview a look!  Check out the link below for the preview video and a few great cocktail tips:

Special thanks to the folks at The Great Courses for putting together such a superb instructional video!
